Mission and Vision


IATSE & AVIXA Partnership

Click here to join the IATSE/TTF/AVIXA Partnership.

The growth of audiovisual technologies throughout the entertainment and exhibition industries has created a need for professionally trained personnel to install, maintain, and operate AV equipment. Our partnership with AVIXA (formerly known as InfoComm) helps the IATSE workforce stay current in this constantly evolving industry through ongoing training with free AVIXA membership.


The IATSE TTF/AVIXA partnership includes Premium Member access to free introductory AV courses and a 15% discount on most trainings, free global trade show access, and members-only events. Click here for more information about AVIXA membership. AVIXA partnership registration is open to all IATSE workers. Register today to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity with courses and content prepared just for you! If you already have an AVIXA account, we'll link it to the partnership.


Courses included in the partnership are specific to your needs as an entertainment industry worker. Start your audiovisual training with Quick Start to the AV Industry Online and continue through Project Management Online.


After completing Quick Start and Essentials, take the free AV Technologist test online and get recognition for your AV training. The AV Technologist Certificate is not a certification, but it can act as a bridge to AVIXA’s ANSI-accredited certification program: Certified Technology Specialist™ (CTS®) credentials. Click here for more information about the certificate.


AV Essentials: A four-day, hands-on introductory class that is part of the AVIXA/IATSE Live Event Technician Certificate Program. The course is designed for IATSE workers who want to become audiovisual technicians.

AVIXA Certified Specialist Prep Course: CTS Prep can help ease your nerves and boost your confidence before you take the Certified Technology Specialist™ (CTS®) exam. This course is available online and in the classroom.


In the fall of 2015, the IATSE Education and Training Department added a valuable new training tool: The IATSE TTF will continue offering this training benefit in Year Four. Effective September 1, 2018 through August 31, 2019, subscription will be free to active IATSE members and those working under IATSE agreements. Through this subscription, workers will continue to have unlimited access to the online library of high-quality, instructional videos across a wide spectrum of technologies. Over 6,300 IATSE workers have subscriptions with access to courses in audio visual skills, animation, design, photography, and more. Click here to browse the full library.
